My recent vintage crime reading:

Christopher Bush's The Case of the Tudor Queen - surprisingly good 1938 murder mystery, rather in the Freeman Wills Crofts style.

Anthony Berkeley's The Poisoned Chocolates Case - golden age detective fiction at its wittiest and most inventive. Published in 1929.

Erle Stanley Gardner’s pulp fiction - before creating Perry Mason Gardner wrote some fine hardboiled pulp crime fiction.

Rex Stout’s The Red Box - a 1937 Nero Wolfe mystery. Great fun.

Mickey Spillane’s Kiss Me, Deadly - better than the overrated and pompous film version.

John Dickson Carr’s The Department of Queer Complaints - Colonel March of Scotland Yard investigates cases too weird for ordinary detectives to solve.

Rufus King’s Murder on the Yacht - published in 1932, another of King's delightful maritime mysteries.
